Patients in the Walnut Creek, California who are dealing with complete tooth loss and are unhappy with traditional full dentures may want to speak to the team at Walnut Creek Laser Dentistry to learn more about all-on fours. All-on on fours is an alternative way to replace an entire arch of teeth within the smile in a way that functions better and more effectively.
What are all-on fours?
Dr. Stephen P. Eriksen of Walnut Creek Laser Dentistry describes all-on fours as the use of four dental implants along the patient’s dental arch to stabilize a more conservative denture. Dental implants are titanium posts that are placed into the bone of the jaw and are used as a support. They fuse with the jawbone to provide a quality foundation, and then restored over the abutment of the implant with a full denture. Because the denture is fixed to the dental implants along the arch, it has the best stability, strength, and function. This makes it reliable and effective for eating all one’s favorite foods with confidence!
Why choose all-on fours?
Dealing with traditional dentures can make it difficult to enjoy social situations where your dentures may slip or come out. It can also lead patients to avoid eating all their favorite foods because of the poor stability and function of their dentures—even with denture adhesive. Many patients choose all-on fours because they:
- Are a smart investment in the smile
- Last a lifetime with proper care
- Offer a foundation for a more conservative denture
- Eliminate the need for denture adhesives
- Allow them to enjoy all foods with confidence
- Provide natural function as found with natural teeth
